If visiting Watkins Glen, NY.... taking Schooner Excursions for the sunset sail is an absolute must. It is a 2 hour sail on Seneca Lake (One of the finger lakes in NY). The Capt and crew make your excursion most pleasurable. We sailed from 6:30PM to 8:30PM on a gorgeous breezy evening.. stunning views of the lake and lakeside landscapes.... More

My husband and I completed our visit to Watkins Glen by sailing on the boat "True Love." It is a gorgeous sailboat built in 1926 and used in the movie "High Society" with Grace Kelly, Fred Astaire, Frank Sinatra and Louie Armstrong. The crew gave us a refreshing tour of Lake Seneca and its surrounding history of the area. Unfortunately,... More

Sit up front and enjoy the beauty of Seneca lake and its scenery. Soothing music as the boat sails gently up to the falls. You are not going on a "tour" per say, but you are going on a sailing experience and Captain Josh and his staff just know how to make it enjoyable, from the amazing local cheese and... More

We had so much fun on this sailboat ride. Beautiful day, wonderful crew, and amazing family memory! Exciting adventure, perfect amount of wind and perfect temperature. None of us had ever been on a sailboat before and we will definitely do it again. The crew interacted with all of us and were very friendly. Definite thumbs up!

This 2 hour sail aboard the Schooner "True Love" was fantastic! Truly perfect sailing and perfect end to a beautiful day! It was so relaxing! Staff was friendly and informative. We fell in love with sailing! Bring your camera for the views and a jacket for the wind.

These guys just rule! The crew is reason enough time go on a 2 hour excursion, coupled with the beautiful boat and spectacular views...a day to remember forever. I'm more in love with New York State than I was before.

Lisa was so accommodating and personable. Stepping onto this historical schooner and learning of its history- amazing. We had a gorgeous day and the wind was just right for our sail around Lake Seneca. Great Captain and crew! Thank you for a memorable time! Sincerely, Lori

Was so impressed and happy to have Lisa (the owner) get this cruise out because the weather forecast was not a good one and was afraid it was going to be cancelled. We had a perfect 2 hour window and loved going out on this beautiful boat. The crew was great and full of knowledge and stories. Enjoyed a glass... More
